Brian Eastick speaks about Denver training camp so far.
England U20s Head Coach Brian Eastick has been putting his World Cup squad through their paces in the USA this weekend as preparations for the FIFA U20 World Cup hot up in Colorado.
The Young Lions have been using the training facilities of MLS outfit Colorado Rapids in Denver since arriving last Friday as they look to acclimatise to working at high altitude ahead of the opening World Cup game with Korea DPR on Friday 29 July.
And whilst it's still early days together for the squad, Eastick is happy with the way things have gone so far.
"We've got some fantastic facilities to use and the hospitality here has been top drawer," he told FATV.
"We have a great pitch and some great facilities to work with here. We've only been here two days but we're adjusting to altitude and the heat quite nicely but we've got another six or seven days still to go here."
Given the timing of the competition in relation to the English season, Eastick also spoke of the quandry he has in what sort of training to put his players through.
"One of the problems we do have is getting the balance right, from the tactical work to the physical work," he added.
"It is still pre-season and probably not a lot of them haven't had 90 minutes under their belts so trying to marry all of those things together and prepare properly for the first game against Korea is a little bit of a juggling act."
